List of Needs

Dear Marblehead Charter Families & Friends,

Would you believe that over 840 students have graduated from the Marblehead Community Charter Public School? For over twenty years, Marblehead Charter has invested in our children’s future by offering an education of the highest order, empowering our students to become capable, self-determining, fully engaged individuals who are creative and critical thinkers.

As parents, you have sustained Marblehead Charter through your hours as volunteers and your participation in fundraising efforts. For that, we are very grateful. As we continue our growth, our school has many ongoing challenges to address including facility upgrades, improved curriculum materials, and the continuation of our technological equipment acquisition plan. The Marblehead Charter Annual Fund will help ensure that these challenges are met and that your children continue to benefit from Charter’s legacy of educational excellence in the future. Your donation will directly impact your child’s experience at Charter!

Please consider making a donation to help provide for the needs of our students and teachers. Your support means so much! Help us meet our financial investment challenges. If you have questions or would like to meet to discuss your donation, please feel free to contact me, Mr. Jan Brodie, Director of Development, at 781-631-0777, extension 11. Thank you!
